Trying to Get Pregnant

Sad & have a LP question

Got my period this morning...major bummer.  I really thought I was pregnant this month.  I seem to have a short LP and I have read some things about taking B6 to lengthen it.  I would like to do this for this next month.  Does anyone here know how much B6 to take a day to try and lengthen it and also what forms B6 comes in?

 

Thanks!

It would be amazing to find out I was pregnant in March! Please send me all your Irish luck (been trying for 7 months and I need it!) I Love you! XOXOXOXO

Re: Sad & have a LP question

  • Talk to your doctor before you start taking B6. They can give you a dosage. GL.

  • I'm not sure what the dosage you should take is. But, I personally would see my OBGYN to make sure that is what is needed. You don't want to take something that might not be right for you!

    GL!

  • Sorry about AF coming. I started taking B6 this cycle because of a possible LP deficiency. I did not consult my doc first only because I have my annual next week and decided to just bring it up then (ill be about 13DPO so we'll see if it worked!)

    I got my B6 at the pharmacy in the supplements/vitamins area. They are pills (not too big either!) and I take the recommended dosage on the bottle, 1 per day. HTH, GL!

    Just note that B6 supplements come if various strengths - 25, 50 and 100 mg. You should not take more than 100mg/day. If you take too much vitamin B6 it can cause nerve damage, it is not common but it is something you should be aware of - especially for anyone who already has any pre-existing nerve related conditions. Also B6 is better absorbed when taken with other B vitamins (B12). B complex supplement is also an option which also comes as B50 or B100 complex.

    With that being said I would let your Dr. know that you are taking them next time you are there. A lot of people don't think to mention to physicians that they are taking vitamins/supplements when they ask if you are taking any medications but they are just as important to mention as prescription meds are.

    HTH! Smile
